I do think there is value in having *something* on our wiki for
"underused" elements from HTML that are much more important in the
microformats world than in traditional web publishing. In particular,
I think it would *extremely* helpful to have something on:
* the various predefined rel tags in HTML 4
Maybe call it an "HTML refresher course", for those of us who never
actually read the spec. :-)
I'm sure I'm not the only one surprised to learn that 'rel-bookmark'
was actually part of HTML, and I personally think "the principle of
least surprise" is often more important than a strict interpretation
of "DRY." When I run into an interesting semantic XHTML design
pattern, my first instinct would be "look it up on the microformats
wiki" rather than -first- check to see if its some obscure (or even
not-so-obscure) part of HTML I'd never heard of...
